‘I’ve got to get Monkey into a bedtime routine soon’ Seems to be my motto at the moment but it never seems to work.
I keep telling myself ‘awwww he’s only . . .’ 8 weeks, 10 weeks and now 12 weeks. I’m serious this time though! When Monkey hits 3 months, I’m going to attempt it!
In going to try and get Monkey into his own bed. Although I love co sleeping and it makes feeding easier, K and I need our bed back at some point. It may not work and if that’s the case we will happily continue sleeping the way we are. It would be lovely to be able to put Monkey down at night and have grown up time again.
Monkey has some weird sleeping patterns that I will need to try and change, if possible, how do you keep a 3 month old awake?! He is the king of catnaps, even at 7 – 8 o’clock at night he won’t sleep for more than half an hour and usually settles for the night around 10pm, which is too late for K and I to spend time together as that’s usually the time we’re beginning to drift into sleep as well. Oh how life changes when you’re a parent.
In all fairness we have been all over the place visiting family and attending funerals lately and this weekend is no exception as we are visiting The Baby Show at Earls Court on Saturday. Which we are looking forward to very much. I think if I had got him into a routine, these last 2 weeks would have ruined it anyway.
I’ll be so happy when we don’t have to travel anymore and can enjoy the lead up to Monkey’s 1st Christmas in our own home.
